The Best Doctor office visit I've had. Dr. Nielsen was patient in addressing all concerns, I did not feel rushed, she communicated and addressed all my concerns/issues even though it was just a wellness appointment and so I was not dismissed and asked to make other appointments or referrals because she took care of every concern I had. Finally, I found a great Doctor, I'm so glad I waited to see her. Only problem is getting an appointment with her as a new patient but she was well worth the wait. I've already referred my friends to her:). Thank you for the very positive experience Doc, it's rare. :)
